FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Consideration of Changes to Special Regulation Designations
[29 Pa.B. 1570]
The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) has approved guidelines with regard to encouraging public participation on possible changes to the designation of stream sections or lakes for special regulation programs. Under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65 (relating to special fishing regulations), the Commission designates certain streams, stream sections and lakes as being subject to special fishing regulations. These designations are effective after Commission approval when they are posted at the site and a notice is published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Under the new guidelines, a notice concerning the proposed designation or redesignation of a stream section or lake under special regulations ordinarily will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin before the matter is reviewed by the Commissioners.
At the next Commission meeting on May 2 and 3, 1999, the Commission will consider designating the following stream section and lake as waters subject to special fishing regulations under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65, effective January 1, 2000:
58 Pa. Code § 65.6. Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only Areas
The Commission will consider designating the following water as regulated and managed under the Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only Program:
Water on County which located Description Bradford Schrader Creek 1.2 mile section from 100 yards downstream of the confluence of Bull Run upstream to the boundary of State Game Land #36
58 Pa. Code § 65.9. Big Bass Special Regulations
The Commission will consider designating the following lake as regulated and managed under the Big Bass Special Regulations and adding it to the list of waters subject to these regulations (58 Pa. Code § 65.9):
County Water Greene Duke Lake (formerly known as Ryerson Station Lake) Westmoreland Mammoth Lake
At this time, the Commission is soliciting public input concerning these designations. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the designations are invited to submit comments in writing to Executive Director, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000 by no later than April 19, 1999.
